Mr JOLLY (Lilley) (6:27 AM) .The Government ought to give serious consideration to this amendment. It may be no more than a coincidence, but it is certainly fortunate for New South Wales that the two years which ended on the 30th June, 1941, were selected as a base years for the fixing of compensation under this scheme, for in those two years taxation in New South Wales increased from £20,000,000 to £24,000,000, an increase of 20 per cent., whilst in every other State taxation remained practically stationary. In Victoria the figure remained at £12,000,000, in Queensland it increased from £8,600,000 to £9,100,000, in South Australia it remained at £4,000,000, in Western Australia it remained at £3,000,000, and in Tasmania there was a slight reduction. It does appear that New South Wales is getting more than a fair deal under this scheme.
